President Trump chose Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations.
Currently Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs for the State Department, Nauert used to be a reporter for Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”
The mainstream media, as well as Congressional Democrats, aren’t pleased with Trump for picking an “inexperienced journalist” for the UN post.
What’s odd is they didn’t make a peep when Barack Obama selected journalists for jobs in his administration – dozens of times!
From Daily Wire:
In 2013, Obama nominated Samantha Powers for the U.N. post. Powers had begun her illustrious career as a war correspondent for four years, covering the Yugoslav Wars for U.S. News & World Report and the Boston Globe, among other publications. She went on to become director of a human rights center at Harvard, but also continued as a columnist for Time magazine.
CNN immediately called into doubt Nauert’s skills. In a section of a news piece titled “Qualifications questioned,” CNN cited a “senior diplomat” who said, “This is extraordinary. Especially in the footsteps of the former ambassadors: Madeleine Albright, Susan Rice.”
CNN was one of many outlets to criticize Nauert.
In another Washington Post piece headlined “The Foxification of the Trump White House, visualized,” the liberal paper complained about the “remarkable bit of interplay between the administration and the network that is also the only one Trump has praised regularly since taking office …”
Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, who served under George W. Bush, noted the irony. “More than 26 reporters went into the Obama Administration. I guess that was fine with the press back then, but not now,” he wrote on Twitter.

A Washington Post reporter thought he “got” Ari Fleischer with this tweet:
All right: Were they from the same cable-news network — the same cable-news network that the president watches for hours and hours each day, and gets bogus information from?

No, silly. Barack Obama had his pick of reporters from every network, newspaper and magazine. They almost all fell for him, and those who didn’t join his Administration loved him and gave him soft coverage for 8 years. https://t.co/iB3knOBDTS

Because Trump is a Republican he is never given the benefit of the doubt by the mainstream media.
That’s not exactly a secret, no matter how hard the fact checkers attempt to look into it.
While Trump remains firm on his border policies, declaring that those within the migrant caravan will not cross into America unless they apply for asylum at the proper ports of entry, the msm has conveniently forgotten that the Obama administration treated migrants the same way as the current administration back in 2013.
From Washington Examiner:
Almost five years ago to the day, Border Patrol agents used pepper spray to force back a crowd of migrants who had tried to illegally cross the border. That group had also thrown rocks and bottles at agents, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported in November 2013.
More from San Diego Union-Tribune:
A group of about 100 people trying to illegally cross the border Sunday near the San Ysidro port of entry threw rocks and bottles at U.S. Border Patrol agents, who responded by using pepper spray and other means to force the crowd back into Mexico, federal officials said.
Obama made it clear how amazing he is and how everyone who has ever worked with him is a dunce.
He starts by saying that on his path to the presidency he began as a community organizer.
However, Obama quickly realized that people weren’t on his level (because he was so woke) and he needed to seek higher office.
It goes on like that for a while, with Obama climbing the ranks and describing how nobody wants to do the “right thing” – except for him.
This guy, huh?
embarrassed represented America as United Nations ambassador during the Obama admintistration from 2013-2017.
While trying to mock President Trump, Power fell for a North Korean parody account that made her look pretty silly.
Trump decided to skip a cemetery commemoration in France due to bad weather.
Power then sent this tweet:
While President Trump couldn’t seem to find arenas big enough to house his supporters for rallies during the midterm elections, Barack Obama couldn’t say the same.
In fact, Obama had a hard time filling small gymnasiums. People were even paid to attend at least one event.
Conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh slammed Obama as “pathetic” for attempting to steal credit for the current booming economy.
And if you think about it, Obama has to know he doesn’t have a leg to stand on. After all, he was the only president in history to never have a GDP above 3 percent.
But now when things are flourishing, nearly two years after Obama is out of office, somehow Barack wants people to believe he was the one responsible?
Kind of infuriating.
